New Insulation Scheme for Beyond Housing, Middlesbrough

In February 2019, SBS began enabling works on a new site in Redcar, in preparation for installing external wall insulation (EWI) to 92 occupied homes. It is acting on behalf of Beyond Housing, following a successful competitive tender.

Later in the year, SBS will begin a second phase of works, involving an additional 98 properties in nearby Overfield. The two phases are expected to be completed within nine months. The project is worth a total of approximately £1.1 million.
